Veteran Hip Hip Icon and Wu-Tang Clan legend U-God has been consistently delivering gems and knowledge darts via his Signal Co. No. 1 backed U-God Raw podcast for a couple of months now.
In the most recent episode released on Wednesday (August 18), U-God took fans on a wild ride down memory lane as he shared an anecdote of the rap groups near-death experiences in the ’90s during the video shoot for their classic cut “It’s Yourz.”
Stemming from a question surrounding LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony’s infamous ‘Banana Boat’ vacation story, in which James leaped into the ocean to save Anthony’s life, U-God explained in one breath how Wu-Tang members Ghostface Killah, RZA and himself, among others, nearly met their demise while in Hawaii shooting the video.
“Ghost rescued somebody from — same shit that LeBron did,” U-God began.
“Somebody fell in the water, Ghost had to go in and save ’em. RZA did the same shit parasailing, but he got tangled up inside the fucking parasail and came down and almost drowned, too,” he continued in the clip.
“I did the same thing with Master Killer — I didn’t know, I smashed into him with the jetski, he flipped over and went into the fucking water and I thought I lost my brother for a second.”
